Give Me a Reason
Originating in 1997,One Shot Johnny is a three piece blues-based band working the Kentuckiana region. Live performances focus on an intense delivery of original and cover tunes with an emphasis on music that 'moves you' - to dance, to contemplate, to shed a tear, to laugh and raise your glass to the infinite variety of human experience represented in blues music. Founding members, Randy Colvin (guitar) and Joe Shirley (bass) have worked together in a number of bands since the mid-seventies. Drummer Jeremiah Kelly joined the band in 2001. The band has been working central Kentucky and Kentuckiana for six years and performed at the 2003 W.C.Handy Festival. 'Give Me A Reason' is the band's third CD preceded by 'Feelin' Dangerous'(2002) and Nuthin'Tuit (2000).
